So this is my second floss. I never bought the V1 because I'm pretty harsh on quads and the thee standoff deck wouldn't have lasted long for me haha. I had the V2 which I loved to fly until it met a violent untimely death when it met a goal post on a football field doing a power loop, it was not salvageable at all so here we go with V2.1.

I freakin love the changes, the boomerang arms are absolutely beast (I opted for the 5mm thick versions since when I crash it tends to be hard and into something solid). The build went together great, the canopy was very well done and looks fantastic, and I've only ran a few batteries through it but Jesus is it ever strong with the 2405/2522's. Going to take some tuning to get it perfect but I'm very very happy with it so far.

Can you add a picture of the Axii's plug? How did you get it to curl around like that?

Nice work with the canopy/motor/prop/batt connector/antenni color coordination, looks sweet!

It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
